IU is now suspending all University-affiliated travel to Europe (Schengen Area) until April 15.

As noted in the most recent public safety advisory, IU has already suspended all University-affiliated international travel until at least April 6. The presidential proclamation for Europe extends until approximately April 13. Additionally, IU is now suspending all University-affiliated travel to Europe (Schengen Area) until April 15.

In light of the CDC’s decision to issue a Level 2 travel alert for all countries, identifying special precautions for high-risk travelers, IU has amended its travel policy to require self-quarantine only by travelers returning from countries under a Level 3 warning.

Any student, faculty member, or staff member returning from a country under a CDC Level 3 warning must self-quarantine off campus for 14 days before returning to any IU campus. This is a critically important public health measure. There will be no exceptions. This requirement currently applies to China, Iran, South Korea, and the twenty-six European countries in the Schengen Area; however, the CDC may add additional countries to the Level 3 list with little warning.
